Seagate data recovery

Seagate hard drives, like any other devices, may fail resulting in data loss.

A hard drive failure can occur due either mechanical or logical issues. In case of mechanical failures, the best solution is to contact a data recovery lab, because such failures typically require complex equipment.

Symptoms of physical failures:

  • unstable disk operation
  • long boot time
  • unusual drive noises (—Ālicking sound, repeated spin-up and spin-down)

Logical disk failures also often lead to the data loss. There are two most common failures - accidental formatting of a hard drive and a file system damage (so-called RAW filesystem issue). In both cases, the data stored on the drive becomes inaccessible. However, do not worry - the data can still be recovered using data recovery software like ReclaiMe. It is important not to write new data to the original drive, since this can lead to a complete loss of previously stored files.

How to recover data from Seagate hard drive using ReclaiMe

  1. Connect your Seagate drive to a PC (desktop or laptop).
  2. Download ReclaiMe File Recovery, install, and run it.
  3. Select the Seagate drive in the device list of ReclaiMe File Recovery software.
  4. Click the Start button and wait till ReclaiMe extracts your data from the Seagate drive.
  5. Check the recovery result. If data looks good, proceed with the purchase of the ReclaiMe license.
  6. Seagate drive recovery
